A 3-year-old boy was killed yesterday when he was struck by a pickup truck in the driveway of his home in Indiana.  Indiana County Coroner Mike Baker says the boy’s father, Charleson Littleben and an uncle, Orlando Lee, were moving vehicles in the driveway at 1370 Poplar Avenue just after 2:30 PM when the toddler, Rylee Littleben, ran out of the house and behind a pickup truck as his father was backing up.  Rylee was struck by the left rear wheel.  Baker says Charleson Littleben immediately put his son in a second vehicle driven by Lee and they rushed to Indiana Regional Medical Center, but the boy had already died.  He was pronounced dead at IRMC at 2:48 PM.  The death has been ruled an accident, and the cause of death is blunt force trauma to the head.  Indiana County District Attorney Pat Dougherty and Indiana Borough police investigated, but no foul play is suspected.
